*Scrap 'n Stamp Blog Hop*


Welcome to the Scrap 'n Stamp "Some Like It Hot" Blog Hop!  If you are following along the hop, you should have come here from Dawn's blog

This Blog Hop is coffee, tea or hot chocolate themed.  I was so thrilled to see this great Lawn Fawn stamp set and bought it as soon as I saw it.  And since I don't drink coffee, I decided to make mine a hot chocolate card.  All I could think while I was making this card on a very cold and snowy day, was that I really wanted a hot chocolate!



I stamped the green mug first... then stamped it again on a full sticky Post-It note and cut it out to create a mask so that I could stamp the smaller cup so that it looked like it was behind it.  I added the interior stamp of the marshmallows that also gave the line to show the inside rim of the cup.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the cups and marshmallows.  I coloured both cups and the hot chocolate with Copics (E30, E33, YG17, YG23, BOO, B02 and C1) and then added the steam in a light grey ink and the sentiment in a chocolate coloured ink.  I added a blue layer behind my white layer and then put it all on to a white card.

I added some shading to the marshmallows with a light grey Copic and then used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to create a little sparkle on the marshmallows.

I hope you will follow along with the rest of the blog hop to see what the other members of this fabulous design team have come up with!  Your next stop is KIA!!  I look forward to seeing what you come up with for our theme!!

Of course, there are prizes to be won!  We will be giving away a total of 9 prizes!  There will be one prize from each of the designer blogs listed below as well as one prize of a $50 gift certificate chosen randomly from all of the people who comment!  Be sure to visit all the links below and leave your comments for your chance to win!

    1. I'm not really all that great in comparison to others... I just don't have the patience for it. Try to two colour shading instead of the three... I find it's so much easier!

  34. Love this sentiment! And now I’d love some cocoa!

    1. We've had a cold winter here in Calgary.... we often get cold temps but they don't last as long as they have in February. I am dreaming of something closer to 0C!
